Miami Open returns to full capacity for 2022 edition

The Miami Open will be back to full capacity this March for the first time in three years, as stated by tournament organizers in a recent announcement.

In 2020, the event was cancelled due to the pandemic, and was only used at 20% capacity last year. However, tournament director James Blake believes this year's edition will be a thrilling event for fans as things are finally starting to return to normal.

“Night and day,” said Blake, when asked how this year’s tournament will compare to a year ago. “Last year people were nervous to come out, we were at 20 percent and it didn’t have the same atmosphere. We did the best we could.

"This year will be completely different, and we’re thrilled. The Dolphins have shown that we can hold safe events here.”

Hubert Hurkacz lifted the men's singles title last year, defeating Italian youngster Jannik Sinner in a final featuring some fresh new faces on the ATP Tour. The women's event saw World No.1 Ashleigh Barty take down Bianca Andreescu in straight sets, as the 2019 US Open champion was forced to retire due to injury in the second set.
